The Pinterest 100 list predicts what people will be pinning, and Sage tops the list of colors for 2018. As one of the top trends to try, this soft green hue has seen a 170% increase in saves, and is being dubbed the “new neutral.” And it’s easy to see why. Sage is never boring, always serene, and brings a subtle touch of color that goes with just about anything. You’ll even find it on kitchen cabinets!

Ultra Violet

Pantone, the color authority, named Ultra Violet the Color of the Year for 2018. This dramatic shade of purple pairs beautifully with white or gray cabinetry, two of the top kitchen trends. According to Zillow, Pantone’s annual selection has a huge impact on the home and interiors industry. Don’t be surprised if you see Ultra Violet influencing home decor this year.

Gray is the ideal backdrop for a kitchen. Neutral and easy to live with, gray tones can be warm or cool, depending on the paint color you use. Try a light shade of gray in place of white or beige, for a contemporary hint of color on walls or countertops. Or opt for gorgeous gray cabinets in shades of Dove Gray, Steel, or Stone.


Shades of mustardy yellow are making a comeback this year. No longer stuck in the 70s, today’s yellows are reminiscent of marigolds and sunflowers — cheerful, sunny shades that are perfect for kitchens. In fact, according to a recent study from Zillow, homes with yellow kitchens command an average of $1,360 more than kitchens painted another hue, boosting your home’s value.


Olive is unique, and oh so chic. From walls to backsplash tile, it’s is the perfect combination of the aforementioned shades of yellow and green, and adds a cool, contemporary pop of color when paired with black kitchen cabinets.

Dusty Rose

Also known as Millennial Pink, this soft, peachy pink is having a moment. More salmon than bubble gum, this muted shade acts like a neutral. Subtly sweet and very versatile, use it on kitchen walls paired with Dark Chocolate, Gray, or Espresso cabinets, and warm wood floors.


This tranquil, light blue shade is anything but babyish. Soft shades of teal and aqua are immensely popular, and set the stage for a stunning kitchen when used on walls or cabinetry. Cool and neutral, pair Tidewater with crisp and creamy white for a touch of contrast, and nature-inspired beauty.
